    The title of your post is catchy but I am more interested in knowing what step one must take to protect our sites.

    Absolutely true. I receive phone calls every day from people who’ve been hacked and it’s a mess out there.

    “Security is not hard. Security is about being proactive.”

    Because most folks assume WordPress is secure out of the box they forget about simple security procedures. You know, like changing passwords periodically, using password managers like 1password, et al, and/or simply clicking the “update” button once a month…

    Honestly, I get the impression sometimes that 90% of the WordPress installations in the World can or will be compromised within two years of their initial installation, due to “driver negligence.” What a great time in computer history to be a wannabe hacker!

    Marco, I think keeping your site(s) and plugins up to date is the best and easiest thing to do. Personally, I like to get someone to do all that stuff for me. I use WP Mule (wpmule.com) which is super cheap and he does other security stuff too for the same price.
